Second slideshow: Education 2.0

  • What we have to face: lack of inspiration (educators) and lack of motivation (students)
  • But we can find motivation and inspiration online
  • e.g. Ted Talks – Ken Robinson
  • Why? We’re changing (students, even children use different communication channels) – Vision of students;
  • We’re digital natives, Generation Z.
  • Many examples, statistics about the problems with education
  • “If you want to teach me, you first have to reach me”
